Cop uses slick takedown against HUGE aggressive woman

Thursday, August 03, 2017

When thinking about a self-defense situation, you already have a couple of things going for you: one, you are reading this article so self-defense is something that you at least think about, and two, I would say that 90% of the population has no idea how to fight.

Let’s be honest, you will not be put into a self-defense situation when you are prepared.  If you are aware of your surroundings, cognizant of the behavior of those around you, and prepared for an attack; more than likely you will not be attacked.

Perpetrators tend to prey on those that they perceive as weak, timid, and scared. Therefore, if you are attacked, you more than likely will not be prepared for it, however; there is one job duty that not only requires one be prepared for it but actually trains for it and encounters these situations on a daily basis…police.

Police officers have to deal with a variety of people in various states of mind on a daily basis.  The angry and irate civilian is one that is very common and an interaction that we witness in the video below.

A couple of things of note here is that the police officer is greatly outsized and the woman that is attempting to harm him is definitely upset.  This type of behavior can be very precarious for a police officer as the level of unpredictability is great.  Luckily for the officer, he knows a little bit of martial arts.

If you notice he strategically positions himself in such a way that he can use gravity and leverage to gracefully force a takedown and ensure his safety.  Check out the video below to see how this scenario played out.

Neither www.mixedmartialarts.com nor I promote street fighting or physical acts of violence in any form or fashion, however; we wholeheartedly support the advancement of one’s knowledge and ability to protect themselves as well as those around them in situations of peril.
